Kathleen Jasperson Whiting has been sewing for as long as she can remember. Her mother and grandmother always had a quilting project going on, so naturally quilting became part of her life. Kathleen is from Boise, Idaho, and has lived the past 35 years in a small town in the Utah mountains where she raised 5 children and now is grandma to 5 granddaughters and a grandson. Sewing, quilting, designing, and decorating are her passions. In 2010 Kathleen was named the first McCall’s Quilting Quilt Design Star. She has won numerous awards for her quilts, and her designs have been published in several magazinesAmerican Patchwork & Quilting, Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting, Quiltmaker, and McCall’s Quilting.
These 20 quilts are a modern development of traditional Log Cabin blocks. They are simple blocks in clear bright colours. Only three techniques are used, Snowball block, half square triangles and pieced strips. There is an introduction to assembling the quilts but no quilting instructions, nevertheless the clear photos show the quilting designs. Each quilt has three size options; baby, a throw (60" by 72") and a bed quilt plus some cushions. There are alternative colourways for each quilt. It would be suitable for a beginner as the instructions and diagrams are easy to follow.
